Today I actually tried something new. As most of you know, I love to craft. I always have. I have never sold a piece of my work. I usually make things for others or for myself. But, today that changed.
Our town is the county seat of our county. They have a visitor's center for people coming into town. The visitor's center has a gift shop. Need I say more? I now have some of my "stuff" for sale on consignment at their gift shop. I know I will not get "rich" putting things there. But the main reason for me doing it is self satisfaction and knowing that what I do is being enjoyed by someone. I am not pricing my things high. I want them to sell and I want people to enjoy them. That, to me, is what my artistic ability is all about. I will still create things to gift to people, for that brings me the greatest joy, and putting a little of myself out there in the public, might bring joy to someone I don't know. How wonderful is that???
